I found this broker/agency on the internet while looking for health insurance options. The agent, Phillip Gropper offered what appeared at first to be a much better deal than any other I'd found. Cheaper premiums... it even included some vision and dental. He said that the reason he had such a good deal was that he could put us into a group package. He could put us in with something called ENA (Employers Network Association.) He said we'd be made a part of the National Allied Workers Union, which would help get us the discounts. Long and short of it is this: there is no such thing as the ENA or the National Allied Workers Union. These are a sham, a front that this brokerage created to swindle potential customers like me. When I questioned "Phillip Gropper" further, he sent me a clearly bogus letter from 'CNA', trying to make this seem legit. The letter offered no contact info for 'CNA', no website, no further info. I could not get 'Phil' to email me a copy of the contract he would want me to sign; blue cross/blue shield (whom he said would be providing the insurance) doesn't know anything about any of the above mentioned parties... Long and short: this is a credit card and check scam. They just want your info. It's fraud, folks. Don't fall for it!

ENA Is Great!

AUTHOR: David - ()

I purchased a Blue Card PPO plan from a gentleman representing ENA back in December of 2013. I have used the benefits of this plan several times and in several states. ( I travel to Los Angeles a good deal.) The plan has allowed me to keep all of my previous doctors and I am still able to reach the original rep who sold me the plan if need be.

ENA is a real company selling real insurance

AUTHOR: RebeccaS - ()

I am not an owner or employee of ENA or the National Allied Workers Union.  I do not make any profit by my relationship to these organizations.

However, I do have insurance through them and have had it for a number of years.  In order to be become a member, you have to become a member of an organization that is part of their network.  Mine is New York Artists Equity - a not-for profit group for artists that offers access to group health insurance (that I pay for totally) as the benefit.

The NAWU plan is what is called a self-insured plan through NAWU (National Allied Workers Union) and at this time is grandfathered by the Affordable Care Act.  The insurance company is Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Illinois with a Blue Card Option - it is a national group - so, the Blue Card option allows members who do not live in Illinois to use doctors in the BC/BS network in other states.

It has worked pretty well for me over the years and is legit.  

I do not know if the broker who you are referring to, Phillip Gropper is legit - however I just want to clarify that this group insurance does exist and many self-employed people are members.  The administrator for the group is Aegis Administrative Services.

I do not know, at this point in time if you can still buy this insurance plan because it is now grandfathered - and enrollment may or may not be closed.  My advice is that anyone wishing to purchase this insurance contact one of the organizations listed above rather than going through a broker (although they may suggest the name of a broker).

Hope this clarifies things.
